Have it as a tea time snack or in a wrap or as a sandwich! Fish cutlets are delicious and versatile! Try it!
Sweet childhood memories of my little sister and I making these cutlets with our ginormous chef hats on! 😊
My little sister’s contribution to the recipe was adding exactly 3 granules of sugar without which the recipe would be a total and utter failure 😂
Let’s make this delicious cutlets together! Without the sugar granules! (Sorry sis! 😂😘🤷♀️)
Yield: 12-14 cutlets
Tilapia fish (or any fish of your choice, preferably boneless)...300 g
Boiled potatoes (cut in cubes)...1 cup
Coriander leaves (chopped)... 3 tbsp.
Ginger...2x2 inch piece
Fresh lime juice...1/2 half
Coriander powder...1 tsp.
Cumin powder...1/2 tsp.
Kashmiri red chilli powder...1/2 tsp.
Black pepper powder...1/2 tsp.
Garam masala powder...1 tsp.
Chaat masala...1 tsp.
Powdered bread crumbs...1/2 cup
All purpose flour (maida)... 1 tbsp.
Oil... enough for pan frying or deep frying
Add approximately 2 tablespoons of oil to a pan set on medium heat
Add fish pieces into the pan
Sprinkle half a teaspoon of salt and turmeric powder on the fish and mix well
Add 5 to 6 tablespoons of water (Don’t add too much water, you will have to discard the water and it will dilute the taste of the fish)
Place the lid on and let the fish cook for 3 to 5 minutes
Let the rest of the water evaporate
Take the fish pieces out in a bowl and add boiled potato pieces
Mash the potatoes and the fish with a fork or a masher
Keep it aside
To a grinder jar add chopped coriander leaves, mint leaves, garlic cloves, green chilli, and ginger
Grind this to a coarse paste and add this into the bowl with the fish and the mashed potatoes
Add coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, black pepper powder, fresh lime juice and half a teaspoon of salt. Mix well
Add a drop of oil on your palms and grease them
Take some of the cutlet mixture and make a fist with it. Check if its firm enough to hold shape
If not add some powdered breadcrumbs, mix well and test again
Once the mixture is firm enough, they’re ready for making cutlets
Take one egg in a bowl and beat well
Add 1 tablespoon of water to the egg and mix
Add half a cup of powdered bread crumbs on a plate
Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour to it
Oil your palms again
Make round balls with the cutlet mix
Dip it in the egg wash and coat it with the breadcrumbs
Make little disc like shapes with the ball and dip it in breadcrumbs again
Take a flat nonstick pan. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and 1 teaspoon of butter
Spread the butter evenly
Fry the cutlets till they are golden brown and crisp on both sides. This should take 5 to 6 minutes
Once the cutlets are done, sprinkle them with chaat masala
Sandwich with the cutlets
I used English muffins but you can use any bread
Let’s make a spread for the sandwich: In a bowl take 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, half a teaspoon of red chilli sauce, half a teaspoon of green chilli sauce, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped coriander leaves, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped red onions, a squeeze of lime juice, some salt and pepper. Mix well
Make a yummy sandwich with the cutlets and this spread!
